To be able to witness the beauty of Philippine Weaves fused with typical fabrics in this modern and digital word is such an experience.
This revolutionary fashion show was unlike any other fashion show that the Philippine audience has seen. With over 60 designers and 120 models showcasing the intricacy of the indigenous weaves from the different regions of the Philippines, it is truly a must see to view the different interpretations of the Modern Katutubo.
The Philippine Fashion Revolution aims to prove that cloth weaving as an art is still there. In fact, it is more alive than ever. No longer limited to indigenous tribes, woven clothing can now be worn by the modern Filipina.
It can be incorporated in office attire, evening gowns, accessories, and even shoe wear. In fact, one of the trends in bridal wear is to have a piece of woven fabric as part of the veil of a bridal gown.
As a true lover of fashion and a person who really love supporting local products, the Philippine Fashion Revolution is a show that I simply cannot miss. It aims to parade designs that use quintessential fabrics infused with Philippine weaves to highlight modern Filipino Fashion.
